I need some reassurance right about now. I recently made a big change in my life. I changed my major from Advertising to Fine Arts. As happy as I am to be in a major I love, I am terrified I won’t be able to find a job once I graduate! I know these classes will enhance and improve my skills and my confidence as an aspiring artist.
I just wish someone in my family could relate to me. My dad is in Law, my mom worked in the medical field and now Law, and my brother and sister are accountants. I can’t relate to them at all.
I actually just got off the phone with my dad and he asked me, “So what kind of jobs can you get with a fine arts major?” That’s the problem, I’m not really sure. I have a go with the flow type of personality. I don’t research things to a serious extent like I need to, I just follow my heart. I need to begin looking for internships and networking with art companies, galleries, other artists, ect.
I have no desire whatsoever to become an art teacher. I dream of one day working for an art company and selling my artwork on the side, eventually becoming a well-known artist. That would be AMAZING!
I love art so much and I know I have the capability of making it big one day. I just need to trust in myself and work hard to achieve the things I want.
Here’s my latest drawing I did in my free time:
